Yet the southeasterly wind in eastern part of China is a dry wind in summer as well as in winter, and in the Yangtze Valley, when it blows consistently, drought is imminent. These facts were known to ancient Chinese philosophers, and one famous poet of Sung dynasty wrote to the effect that when the southeast wind blows, the rainy season is at an end.
